Already eating cucumbers,romaine and tomatoes planted in greenhouse back in October. Tomato seedlings now 5-6 inches tall (100) four varieties. 165 pepper plants. Everything from sweet bells to bhut jaloki ghost peppers(1,000,000 scoville units). Squash, Artichokes, Iraqi eggplants, special yellow strawberries. All ready for transplant. One raised bed of regular strawberries.
Will start tilling the garden Saturday and planting when the pecan trees start to bud. Will directly sow Corn, Butterbeans, cucumbers, watermelons, field peas, green beans. I will also be planting marigolds among the veggies to help draw the bees and repel certain bugs.
In addition Susan had me help her start over 4000 flowers in the green house. They will be ready for planting shortly also.
I spend many an evening reading good gardening books in the greenhouse. Something about the soothing smells and silence. It is as close to total serinity a person can experience.
